A Voice Is Sounding is from Sojourn’s 2011 EP A Child Is Born.

The lyrics are adapted from a fifth century Latin hymn by Jamie Barnes.

Verse 1
Listen a voice is sounding
Christ is near we hear it say
Cast away your dealings of darkness
All you children of the day

Verse 2
Shaken by the solemn warning
Out from the shadows we arise
Christ the sun all ill dispelling
Shines upon the dawning skies

Misc 1
(Pre-Chorus)
Come and see in awe and wonder
The Word as silent babe
And with a blast of thunder
His majesty proclaim

Chorus 1
A voice is sounding loud
Christ is here Christ is here
A voice is sounding loud
Christ is here Christ is here

Verse 3
See the lamb so long awaited
Comes with pardon down from above
Let us haste in tears of sorrow
To receive His benevolent love

Verse 4
When He comes again in glory
And the world is wrapped in fear
He will shield us with his mercy
And in love will draw us near
